Balancing a state budget, the home game

Here is a great widget from the Los Angeles Times with which you can attempt to balance the California State Budget. It's hours of diversion, trust me.

Enjoy playing with the politicians' toys,

I didn't finish balancing my hypothetical budget. Its pretty depressing to see what kinds of necessary things we'd have to cut in order to make it work. I got about half the budget shortfall covered before I gave up.

Harsh, no?

I don't envy them that job, but you know what -- it's their job. And, there are lots of bad decisions that got states into the pickles they are in now. Like the Oregon Kicker. If you get extra... give it back? Uh... how bout save it for a rainy day? It's raining, and now there's no savings, DUH.
